How to get the most out of a networking internship

I’m an intern at a big company.

It’s the best job I’ve ever had, and I’m going to have to find another one in a year or two. 

As a kid, I always dreamed of going to college and working in a big-name company like Apple or Google, but those dreams are long gone now.

Nowadays, I have to compete with students from any college in the world for a job. 

I’m a network engineer. 

It’s a job where I’m working with a big, fast-growing company to build out the tech that makes their business thrive. 

The job is demanding and it involves learning all of the skills required to build a big tech company. 

This year, my internship is at a game engine company.

In order to be considered for the job, I need to have a good grasp of the tech behind a game that’s coming out later this year, like the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. 

But the real test of my skills comes during my first day on the job.

The boss asks me to show off my knowledge of game engine internships to the boss. 

“Do you have a question about internships?” he asks. 

Well, yeah, of course I do. 

So I start off with a quick rundown of how they work, which is pretty self-explanatory. 

There are five steps to an internship: 1.

Find out about the internship. 

2.

Learn what it entails. 

3.

Apply for the internship and be accepted. 

4.

Meet the intern. 

5.

Work with the intern in order to get a job at the company.

I’m lucky enough to have two internships at a company that I can apply for. 

They both came from a different part of the world, but one is a real big step in my career, the other is a little bit more of a dream come true. 

In the first internship, I applied for an internship that’s a little more in-depth, covering everything from how to create games for a new game engine, how to make the game engine run, how the intern will work, and what the intern is expected to do.

The second internship is a bit more technical, focusing on the intern’s responsibilities. 

First, the intern must write the internship’s application, which explains the requirements for the position, what the internship will look like, and a few other things. 

Then the intern has to show that they understand the job and are comfortable with working with the company’s technology. 

At the end of that application process, the company gives the intern a job offer. 

While I’ve been a part of a few internships and internships where I worked with companies that had a big name, the job at this company is just the most technical one I’ve had. 

All of the positions at the game studio are big and they are hiring. 

If I get the chance to work with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing how the job is going to turn out. 

And if I get a chance to show the tech I learned from the intern that I am capable of, then that’s just as exciting.
